Wreath of Fidelity

Wreath of Fidelity

When you hold me close, skin to skin
Encircling me like a wreath
Fate's encompassing embrace
Ennobles truth stirring beneath
Within gentle angelic wings
You pull me into safe harborย 
Where God plants devotion's roots
To produce love's strong arbor

My emotions grow in grace
Understanding relevant role
To nurture your masculinity
And cherish love's hold
Commitment is completeness
Melding minds and hearts as one
Affections cycle in safe circle
Never coming undone

My heart beats a pledge
My appetent body makes a vow
The lips you kiss press readyย 
To profess forever now
The intentions swirl around us
Perfumed with proximity
A premise for promise
Wrapped in love's wreath of fidelityย

Yay! Thank you, Tony. This was an old poem that hardly recognizes its original now. I wanted to make it really emphasize the comfort of fidelity in love. I am excited that you liked it so much to Penn it and to validate that I should put this one in my book. I am rewriting so many poems to make them better for my book. Your support always means so much to me. Love and hugs, C

Cherie this is beautiful. The words wrap themselves around and entwine through love's passionate embrace. It is sexy without being sordid. Excellent writing!ย  โš˜ x

Hi Being Me!ย  Thank you!ย  I am so glad you said that!ย  I never want to come across as sordid...but sexy, yes!ย  I am happy you think that. I think being in a committed relationship, having that safety and security is what makes love so beautiful....without it, life has no connection and safe place to fall...I rewrote an old poem and this will be in my book....It reads hardly like the original now at all...lol.ย  I basically wrote a whole new poem out of it.ย  Thank you for your support. xo ;)ย  Love n Hugsย

My Dear Cherie,

With the heat of her fidelity
His touch ignites her inner fire
He pulls her body close to his
She feels appetent desire

.
They couple in purest passion
With eruptions of their Souls
Two everlasting Soulmates
Now have become whole

All my love,
Larry xxx

Hi dear Larry...Thank you for your beautiful passionate verses in response to my poem.ย  I will be putting this one in a book I am publishing later this year.ย  I reworked an older poem and I like it so much better now.ย  I will always believe that committed devoted relationships are sacred and should not be taken advantage of.ย  God designed us to need a soulmate and friend that is ours to love and be with forever.....Those who do find it are very fortunate indeed!ย  Love n Hugs, xoย

Hi Greg.ย  Thank you so much!ย  That is a mighty flattering comment!ย  Bless you.ย  I likeย  how this one turned out after a lot of reworking to make it feel the tone of devotion I wanted. I am very sentimental over love that is in a committed relationship and sacred.ย  I think that kind of relationship is a gfit from God...honestly.ย  xo Love n Hugsย

Another stunning write Cherie, I love that you are such a romantic loving soul...it really shines in your work my friend. Though reading some of the comments I have to agree and disagree. Having been in a few loving committed relationships I have known love and security and it is a beautiful thing. However it is possible to feel just as secure and if possible...happier alone and I have found that I have grown spiritually since being out of a relationship. Maybe I have been in the wrong relationships I don't knowย  but love is around us in so many different formsย  and wild horses could not drag me back into a relationship...so I have found benefits and disadvantages to both and decided, for me at least, I am finally free to be...me...for a change and would not have it any other way....hugs and hugs lovely lady ๐Ÿ’•

HI Marion. Thank you.ย  I am totally a hopeless romantic, even as I have suffered much pain in life from love...but I still believe it CAN be very beautiful and secure.ย  I agree with you though that people can be happy not in a relationship and rely on themselves and be content. I think the love between me and my children is the greatest love I have invested in....always unconditional and true.ย  When we tend to get hurt, it does make trust in love hard.ย  I understand your feelings about that, Marion. Since I am coming out with a love poetry book later this year, I have focused on writing them for my collection.ย  I can write about other things..lol...but I always navigate back to what inspires me.ย  ย  xo ;)ย

Ha...your poetry is always a pleasure to read whatever it is about...I agree love of children and animals is the purest form of love...though I have great respect for those who truly find their soul mate and stay together for ever..that is a beautiful thing. I think my soulmates come in animal form ...plus...they don't talk back ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜

Lol....I understand!ย  My dog, Haven is my best friend and the man around the house.ย  Although, I do think he talks back to me..He takes a sassy tone with me a lot and I hear him sigh and roll his eyes at me...lolย  Men!ย ย

Yea I know what you mean...my Keller hogs the bed and actually sighs if I dare to turn over and disturb him. He eventually stomps off to his own bed...he's a man also lol ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†
